Lewiston is a city in and the county seat of Nez Perce County, United States, in the state's north central region. It is the second-largest city in the northern Idaho region, behind Coeur d'Alene, ninth-largest in the state. Lewiston is the principal city of the Lewiston, ID-WA Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Nez Perce County and Asotin County, Washington; as of the 2010 census, the population of Lewiston was 31,894, up from 30,904 in 2000. Lewiston is located at the confluence of the Snake River and Clearwater River, thirty miles upstream and southeast of the Lower Granite Dam; because of dams on the Snake and Columbia River, Lewiston is reachable by some ocean-going vessels. The Port of Lewiston has the distinction of being the farthest inland port east of the West Coast; the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport serves the city by air. Lewiston was founded 158 years ago in 1861 in the wake of a gold rush which began the previous year near Pierce, northeast of Lewiston. In 1863, Lewiston became the first capital of the newly created Idaho Territory.
Its stint as seat of the new territory's government was short-lived, as a resolution to have the capital moved south to Boise was passed by the Idaho Territorial Legislature on December 7, 1864. Lewiston’s main industries are agriculture and timber products, light manufacturing. Ammunition manufacturing maintains a important and growing presence in Lewiston, being the headquarters of ammunition makers CCI and Speer Bullet; the city is the primary regional transportation, health care, entertainment center of the surrounding area and serves as a recreation destination for the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. Lewiston is home to Lewis -- a public undergraduate college. Community activities in Lewiston include the Dogwood Festival, Hot August Nights, the Lewiston Roundup; the Nimiipuu have inhabited the area for thousands of years. The first people of European ancestry to visit the Lewiston area were members of the David Thompson expedition of 1803. Thompson was looking to establish fur trading posts for the Hudson's Bay Company of British North America.
Thompson established the first white settlement in MacKenzie's Post. But it soon failed as the local Nez Perce tribe's men considered beaver trapping to be women's work, the tribe was migratory and women thought they had enough to do; this was followed by the Lewis and Clark Expedition in October 1805. At the future townsite, they encountered settlements of the native Nez Perce, they returned to the valley on their eastward trip from the Pacific in the spring of 1806; the town is believed to have been named after Meriwether Lewis and after Victor Trevitt's hometown of Lewiston, but people don't know, the reason Vic Trevitt shouted the idea out. He stated the "Journal of Lewis and Clark" talked about being in the valley; the town was founded in 1861 in the wake of a gold rush which began the previous year near Pierce, northeast of Lewiston leading to the Nez Perce War and the removal of Nez Perce. The first newspaper in present-day Idaho, the Lewiston Teller began publication in the city of Lewiston, Washington Territory in 1862, was joined by the present newspaper, the Lewiston Morning Tribune in September 1892.
In 1863 Lewiston became the capital of the newly created Idaho Territory. Thomas J. Beall, one of the first three white settlers in Lewiston, wrote many of the Lewiston Tribune's first articles, continued to do so until his death at the age of 89; the city's stint as a seat of the new territory's government was short-lived. As the gold rush quieted in northern Idaho, it heated up in a new mineral rush in southwestern Idaho, centered in Idaho City, which became the largest city in the Northwest in the mid-1860s. A resolution in late 1864 to have the capital moved from Lewiston to Boise was passed by the Idaho Territorial Legislature on December 7, six weeks before the territorial legislature's session began, after litigation, on a split decision decided by one vote on the territorial supreme court on geographic lines. Boise became the capital in 1866. So, the territorial governor, Caleb Lyon and the territorial secretary, secretly took the territorial seal and treasury, fled from Lewiston. Lyon went down river to Portland, Oregon, a trip marked by the alleged theft of the treasury from his steamship cabin.
The territorial secretary departed southward for Boise to avoid the public outrage, sure to erupt. North Idahoans were somewhat placated in 1889 when the University of Idaho was awarded to nearby Moscow, thirty miles north, began instruction in 1892. Lewiston State Normal School, now Lewis-Clark State College, was established in 1893, as was another normal school or teacher education college, now defunct, in the south at Albion; these were the state's first three institutions of higher education. Lewiston was the site of the first public school in Idaho, in 1862. Hence, it carries the designation of Lewiston Independent School District #1. Lewiston's history has been researched and documented extensively by former Mayor Dr. Gene Mueller, who published Lewiston: From packtrains and tent saloons to highways and brick stores: a century of progress, 1861-1962 and Lewiston: A pictorial history. Lewiston is located at the confluence of the Clearwater rivers. West of Lewiston is the smaller twin city of Clarkston, Washington.
The north-flowing Snake River departs Hells Canyon and forms the state boundary with Washington, while west-flowing Clearwater River

Bates College is in the Androscoggin County city of Lewiston. Demand for a new county emerged when the residents of the growing town of Lewiston complained of the long distance they had to travel to reach Wiscasset, the county seat of Lincoln County, in which Lewiston was located, it was an impractical circumstance as Lewiston's neighbor, was part of Cumberland County. As the growing partnership of the two towns emerged, the case for the towns to be in the same county grew. Different plans were discussed, including Lewiston joining Cumberland County; the idea of a new county came to the table. The debate became over which town would be the center of the new county.
Bath and Lewiston each desired the distinction. Lewiston won the debate. Androscoggin County was created in 1854 from towns in Cumberland County, Lincoln County, Kennebec County, Oxford County; the next issue centered on where to put the county seat, as both Lewiston and Auburn desired to be named the county seat. It would be put to a vote, with both towns putting different offers on the table, including ideas to cut the costs of the new county buildings for surrounding towns. Auburn would win a convincing victory, with the towns on each side of the river voting for the town on their side; as more people lived to the west of the Androscoggin River, Auburn won the vote.
